Today on March 20 Google Doodle celebrates Spring Equinox 2019, a celestial event that marks as the beginning of spring in many cultures. Spring Equinox…
We love to write about one of the famous robots (Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini robot) that doesn’t stop astonishing us. And this time SpotMini robot dances on the song of Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars.
Recently, during the WIRED25 festival in San Francisco, Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini robot got onstage and danced as the running man like it was born to. “In our videos we typically show the very best behavior,” Raibert (company co-founder) said. “It’s not the average behavior or the typical behavior. And we think of it as an aspirational target for what the robots do.”
If you are familiar to the actions of this amazing robot, then you should absolutely know that SpotMini has a lot of capabilities such as opening the door.
Watch the video here how the robot opens the door!
And what about this one? SpotMini robot dances!
It’s really amazing, robot dances as natural as humans.
“Right now robot technology has advanced a lot,” Raibert said, “but it’s still not all the way where we’d like it to be. And so I think our job is to keep push the boundaries, but also find the best possible uses for the technology as we have it.”
About the SpotMini robot
Boston Dynamics SpotMini is a small four-legged robot that comfortably fits in an office or home. It weighs 25 kg (30 kg if you include the arm). It is all-electric and can go for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is the quietest robot that Boston Dynamics have built. The robot is going on sale the next year in 2019. Boston Dynamics has 10 SpotMini prototypes now and will work with manufacturing partners to build 100 this year, company co-founder and President Marc Raibert said, “That’s a prelude to getting into a higher rate of production” in anticipation of sales next year”.
